Suicide at RingsteadOn Monday evening an inquest was held at the Thrapston Workhouse, before Mr. J. T. Parker, coroner, on the body of George Mundin, Ringstead, labourer, between 60 and 70 years of age, who destroyed himself by cutting his throat. The deceased had for some time been in a depressed state of mind, owing to family troubles, and he dreaded having to go into the Union. He had also been attended for some time for bronchitis by one of the medical officers of the Union. Evidence was given by a daughter that at about six o'clock in the morning she heard a noise, and ran into the deceased's bedroom. She found him with his throat cut, and a penknife in his hand. He was removed to Thrapston Union, and assiduously attended by Mr. W. H. Masters, but died on Sunday from inflammation of the windpipe and bronchitis.The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide during temporary insanity."
